Service introduction

One of my passions is helping those challenged by the process of building a family. This could be due to infertility, miscarriage or pregnancy loss, post-partum or post-adoption depression, stress regarding adoption, general anxiety, and the adjustment to parenting or living childfree after these experiences. I have gained insight and an intimate perspective into the issues you may be facing and the various paths this process can take. Feelings of isolation, hopelessness, shame, trauma, anguish, anger and relationship problems may surface. You may feel as though your body has betrayed you which undermines feelings of safety and security. Relating to your partner, family or friends becomes harder. This pain is often unseen but consuming. The deep sense of someone else truly understanding what this experience is like can be very healing. I can help you care for yourself at this very vulnerable time. During this rollercoaster of emotions, I hope to help you find validation, peace, strength and the ability to better manage daily life.
